Abstract: Sera of 80 patients with pyodermias of varius etiology were analysed for interferon-g (IF-g), antiinterferon autoantibodies (IF-a-AB), corresponding antiidiotypic antibodies (IF-AIAB) and the ratio IF-a-AB/IF-AIAB using ELISA assay. There was no correlation between serum IF-g and IF-a-AB. Progression of this disease was characterized by an increase of serum IF-a-AB and a decrease of IF-AIAB. Prolonged duration of this disease also caused the decrease of serum anti IF-a-AB and IF-AIAB. The ratio of IF-a-AB/IF-AIAB increased with severity and duration of this disease.
